James Comey big and strong...

Error message

Before this news cycle is completely over, may I just say that Mr. Comey is one of the more pathetic government bureaucrats I've had occasion to witness in my sixty-three years. The juxtaposition of his towering size and manly presentation with his pathetic...

scaredy-cat mea-culpa (I'm sorry I'm so weak) response (twice!) to Senator Dianne Feinstein in a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee is a moment worth remembering until we die.

Beyond pathetic. If this is the man who led the FBI for years, imagine the effeminate culture that prevailed among the FBI male agents during his directorate. 

If Comey had simply said, "I failed," I would have respected him for it. Saying "I failed" is manly. Every man understands and is ready to forgive.

Instead, confronted by a woman, he pleaded weakness. How awful is that?

Comey did precisely what Feinstein suggested he do. Before he said he wished he'd been stronger, oozing a false sympathy, she laid it all out for him. She spoke of the intimidation factor of the oval office while pointing to his bigness and strongness.
